THE GODS OF MOUNT OLYMPUS
by ROBERT PENN WARREN
Centuries ago the Ancient Greeks worshiped a group of powerful gods and goddesses who were believed to dwell on the lofty peaks of Mount Olympus, high above the clouds. The Greeks imagined these gods as being very much like themselves, with human traits and human forms—only more beautiful, more powerful, and immortal.
The stories or myths which the Greeks invented about their gods and the creation of the world are a rich part of our heritage; and THE GODS OF MOUNT OLYMPUS, written by Robert Penn Warren, one of our most distinguished writers, fills a long-existing need for a simple, comprehensive volume to introduce young readers to the key figures in the fascinating realm of Greek mythology.
Here are such favorite immortals as Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite, Prometheus, Athene, and others in many of the exciting myths in which they play important roles.
